So I signed up with three other chickies to do a Biggest Loser thing on the base, and we started last Monday. As I do every year (at least for the past several), I take a few weeks to write down everything I’m eating (and drinking…I love my wine), so I can reprogram myself. Not so much in calories, but in the actual content of what I’m eating…i.e., what percentage is fat, sugars, fiber, that sort of thing.
As usual, my fiber quotient is seriously lacking, and my protein is through the ceiling. So I did a bit of ‘Net surfing, and found not one, but two answers to my problem…the first is Fiber One cereal for lunch. Yeah, it looks like a bunch of twigs, but it actually tastes pretty damned good, especially if you’re not a regular cereal eater. The second, tho, was a major breakthrough for me…Triscuits. They’ve got a cracked pepper and olive oil version out now that’s quite simply FAB. It’s got some protein, but just as much fiber, which is what I needed. I’ve also been eating oatmeal for breakfast, and have one of those little baggies of carrots and some apples at my desk for when I want something sweet.
After my first week, I felt fabulous, and was drinking just as much, if not more water than I’d wanted to, so it’s a bennie in both areas.
I weighed in last Monday, and probly won’t again until sometime mid-week, so I’ll be posting my last weigh in.
1/7/08…223 lbs (yeah, I gained 3 over the holidays–wine weight–which makes my net loss last year 12 lbs)
1/23/08…219 lbs (woohooo…I lost 4 pounds in two weeks!)
On the agent front, I had one reject, but still have four out there, one who has the first 100 pages of View, so until I hear from her, one way or the other, I’m holding tight, baby!
